These are additional configurations that you must set to reconnect to your virtual appliances after enabling Dedicated Management.
Connecting to the management port
Enabling Dedicated Management will disconnect your SSH connectivity to the Services interface. Once you enable Dedicated Management, you must re-establish the SSH connection to the Management interface.
- Establish your SSH connection to the Dedicated Management
ssh -i <key_pair_file_name> bluecat@<dedicated_management_ip>
Adding a static route
After enabling Dedicated Management, if BAM and BlueCat DNS for AWS are not on the same subnet, you must manually add a static route on BlueCat AWS Virtual Appliances to allow connectivity to BAM via the Dedicated Management interface.
- Add a static route indicating to where the BlueCat AWS Virtual Appliances
server should send
Adonis> configure network Adonis:configure:network> add static-route network <BAM_SUBNET/NETMASK> via-address <dedicated_management_interface_gateway_IP>
- You need to add a static route to any devices that require access through the Dedicated Management interface, such as SSH clients or SNMP management servers.
